About

The name Finistère derives from the Latin Finis Terræ, meaning end of the earth.

As a vegetarian intending to walk the Camino de Santiago in 2016 I found it difficult to find information specific to vegetarians on The Way of St James. So I decided to create this site to share my experiences in the hope other vegetarians will find it useful.

My intention is to show how to eat a healthy, whole food vegetarian or vegan diet while walking the Camino. Cooking our own meals or eating at vegetarian albergues or restaurants. Letting you know what is generally available to be a self sufficient veggie on the Camino de Santiago – here is my list of veggie places to eat on the Camino!

My wife and I live in Sydney, Australia and we walked the Camino Frances from September to October 2016. We will be walking again in 2019 from Brittany in France to Fisterra in Spain.

    Really enjoyed your talk at Mt Vic. Looked for you after as I wanted to ask about the blue blister preventing things you mentioned. [ If you could let me know the name thanks.] Coincidence but my wife & I were saying just last night let’s think about becoming vegetarians. Thanks again for an inspiring talk. John Abbott

    Thanks for writing this blog. What a great resource. I’m a vegetarian (from Sydney too) and will be walking the Camino Frances in September and October 2017 so your blog is of much interest to me. You can be sure no post will go unread.
    Best wishes

    Fantastic blog. Thank you. I am vegan and will be walking the Camino from 1 September into October this year (2017) – same time of year as you last year. I am also from Sydney.

      Great your doing it as a vegan Nikki! Take some oats or other light to carry breakfast. Mostly it was cheese bocadillo or croissant at a cafe for veggie breakfast so as a vegan you’ll need to make your own. Mostly fresh bread is available too. Have a great Camino!

    Hi there. I have wanted to walk the Camino for some time now, and this coming year might be my first chance (teens sufficiently independent so I can travel without them). I am a vegan, but also I want to travel with a group ideally, rather than completely fend for myself – especially as I can probably only go for 10-12 days’ max this time. Do you happen to know of any groups that walk the Camino with a vegan-friendly bias? I am 50, and would love to be with a mixed group of like-minded individuals. For me, walking the Camino, and travel in general, is about connecting with people as much as the location and experience. Thanks for any tips! Sue (in Wales, UK)
